From the dim and distant past, my 1990 GSX-R 400 RRL SP. Bought from Fast Line in Preston, it replaced the RGV250 that I'd had for a couple of years and never really got on with. Was a great reliable bike, re-sprayed in later colours than it was, and with the gear position speed limiter modified to de-activate it.

Should've kept it...

I've found a few more photos of the old GSX-R, but wished I hadn't after battling with photobucket for the last hour! They seem to have changed the system so that it doesn't use the file names you've given your photos any more, and trying to find out what their system has called the uploaded files isn't obvious either. Maybe I'm too old for computers...

Dont think I've ever seen a 400 gixer in the flesh.. Looks very modern to say how old it is. Wonder where it is now Rolling Eyes
Thanks for sharing, another model I would be proud to have in my man space Very Happy

Nice one, not sure I've seen that before. If I recall correctly, I was consistently quicker up the strip than Alan on his dyno-certified 138bhp 1100N... Dance

They do go nicely. Mrs.S had a GK73 with a Yoshi pipe on it, this is the best pic I can find.
